  5. 5. 1950s Management by Objectives (MBOs) (Peter Drucker/GE) • Not Ambitious: Linked to compensation • Too static: Annual cadence • Top-down and bureaucratic 1980s Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) (Andy Grove/Intel) • “Where do I want to go? How will I get there?” • Ambitious: Decoupled from compensation / public • Agile: Intel monthly; Quarterly cadence is default 1990s: Google begins using OKRs w/just 40 employees 2000s: 100s of companies (Twitter, LinkedIn, GoPro, Zalando) History of OKRs
  6. 6. Benefits of OKRs • Easy to understand: Simple terminology that enhances buy-in, understanding, and support. Rick Klau: “When OKRs are working well it’s as if everyone has acquired fluency in a new language.” • Shorter cadence: Reduces the lag between planning and action, increasing agility and change readiness. • Focus on what matters most: Separate the signal from the noise and isolate the most fundamental priorities. • Transparency: Everyone sees all OKRs (recall the Google quote). • Drive engagement: Teams and individuals have a say in creating OKRs, and can engage in meaningful discussions on results. • Promote visionary thinking: OKRs are meant to stretch the organization’s thinking on what is possible. Benefits of OKRs
  7. 7. Companies that do goal setting quarterly are 3.5x more likely to be top performers in their industry. Source: Stacia S. Garr, “High-Impact Performance Management”, Bersin by Deloitte, December 2014 “For the group who used OKRs we saw an increase in their average sales per hour of 8.5%. This increase is not only statistically significant, but practically significant.” - Chris Mason, Ph.D., Sr. Director, Strategic Talent Solutions Source: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/sears-holding-company-study-shows-okrs-impact-bottom-line-ben-lamorte ROI of OKRs by the Numbers
  8. 8. OKRs: A critical thinking framework and ongoing discipline that seeks to ensure employees work together, focusing their efforts to make measurable contributions. Ongoing discipline: Don’t “Set it and forget it.” Ensure employees work together: OKRs must maximize cross-functional alignment and collaboration​ Focusing their efforts: OKRs are not a task list. They must represent what is most important Make measurable contributions: Key results are quantitative Critical thinking framework: Drucker: “The truly dangerous thing is asking the wrong questions.” Definitions of OKRs
  9. 9. Objective - A statement of a broad qualitative goal, designed to propel the organization forward in a desired direction. • “What do we want to do”​ • Example: Delight customers with relevant offers and communications Key Result - A quantitative statement that measures the achievement of a given objective. “How we will know we’ve met our objective?”​ Increase revenue per email sent by 10% “Add 3 new fields to marketing database” “Send Better Emails” “Improve Email Open Rate” Key Result Examples
  10. 10.  Baseline – Used when you need to gather baseline information in order to set a target. Example - “Obtain a baseline for coupon redemption.” • Metric – The most common. These track quantitative outcomes designed to gauge success on your objectives. • Positive: Increase, grow, build, etc. Key results is framed in positive language. • Negative: Reduce, eliminate, lower, decrease, etc. • Threshold: Used when you require a range. For consultants: “Maintain a consultant utilization rate between 70 and 80%” • Milestone – Often used to convert a binary outcome into a key result. Rely heavily on scoring. Example - “Release push notification.” Types of Key Results
  11. 11. Characteristics of Effective Key Results MUST HAVE 1. “Key” not “all” - Is the key result just “business as usual” or is it a “key” result 2. Specific - Using specific language improves communication and avoids ambiguity 3. Measurable - Progress should not be subject to opinion 4. Results are not tasks - Key results are results/outcomes, not tasks 5. Clear - Use High School English with only standard acronyms 6. Aspirational - You achieve more when you set the bar high 7. Scored - Use 0-1 scores to clearly communicate targets, manage expectations SHOULD HAVE 1. Vertically Aligned - OKRs align with higher level OKRs 2. Horizontally Aligned - OKRs that depend on other teams are jointly defined 3. Progress - Should be possible to make progress on a key result every 1-2 weeks 4. Owned - Most should originate from OKR owner, not corporate mandate 5. Positive - Create metrics where “bigger is better” where possible Characteristics of Effective Key Results
  12. 12. 1. Start at the top and determine why OKRs 2. Create clearly defined roles for the program 3. Agree on deployment parameters 4. Provide OKRs training 5. Communicate OKRs 6. Create OKRs with a coach 7. Own key results, mostly bottom-up 8. Conduct a mid-quarter review 9.

  13. 13. ™ ™ Questions You Asked
  14. 14. ™ You Emailed Us These Questions… 1. How do we figure out what our Objectives should be? And then, how to figure out the Key Results for each Objective? How do we make sure Objectives sound different (are not the same as KRs)? 2. What to do when Key Results cannot be quantified? Can they just be measurable, but not quantified? 3. Should every goal in the organization be aligned to the top goals? When is it OK not to align? 4. What is truly different between MBOs or SMART goals vs. OKRs (they all look very similar)? 5. Should goal-setting (OKRs, MBOs, etc.) be used as part of performance management? 6. OKRs are recommended to be set quarterly but what if we want monthly goals? 7. Is there a real ROI on using OKRs or setting objectives company-wide? 8. Are OKRs just a passing fad or a niche concept that will go away? See the Answers (after the webinar) on our blog!
